After several years of slow but steady growth, the number of families who opted for their children to learn at home skyrocketed when state governments closed public schools in attempts to slow the spread of COVID-19. 

At-home learning nearly doubled during the lockdowns. If you are considering alternatives to in-person public schools, here are a few things to keep in mind:

“I am surprised by how easy it is for the kids to be able to work at their own pace. If they excel in a certain subject, they can work ahead. If they are struggling with a subject, they can take extra time to make sure they fully understand what is being taught before moving on to the next lesson.”

“My son loves that he has the opportunity to take gifted and talented classes … He also likes the idea of dual enrollment once he reaches the high school level so that he can be working on his associate degree while still in high school.”
